The Fully-matured-care-home-parcel makes a wonderful gift for a loved one that has moved, or is moving into a care home. It can be a struggle for an older relative to have to come to terms with changing their every day routine and adapt to their new life in a care home.
Whether your elderly relative is moving to a care home because they are struggling with a chronic illness and can no longer look after themselves, or their age and frailty has now become a safety concern, there can be a stressful period of adjustment for them to cope with.
This is why we love the idea of this wonderful care parcel. It is an ideal gift to help an elderly relative settle into their new surroundings and can help fill their idle time that would normally have been spent doing other things.
When moving into a care home and having everything taken care of for you, then your loved one will be free of having to go shopping, prepare and cook meals, do the washing up, deal with the laundry, and many other household tasks that need performing when running your own home. This can mean that they are left feeling bored with plenty of spare time on their hands that they are not used to having.
This carefully pieced together Kiss My Parcel gift box is crammed with very useful and practical gifts – from Classic Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm to Large Print Bridge Playing Cards to keep body and mind well taken care of.
We especially loved the inclusion of such items as Wrights Traditional Coal Tar Soap and Seven Seas Simply Timeless Cod Liver Oil. These are little things that can help transport the mind back to childhood when everyone used Coal Tar Soap and Cod Liver Oil was administered daily! This can help bring back nostalgic memories that your loved one can share with their fellow care home residents and promote new bonds of friendship.
Boredom is something that a new care home resident will have to deal with. With plenty of idle time on their hands, your loved one can often feel a bit lonely and start to lose their self-esteem. The inclusion of boredom-busting gifts in this parcel is a wonderful touch. There are plenty of different activities that your loved one can enjoy here. We particularly liked the Active Minds Link & Think Game, the Large Print Word search Book (great for those with failing eyesight) and the Tangle Therapy Colouring Book. These wonderful gifts will certainly help to fill many empty hours with interesting and stimulating activities for your loved one.
